My first CBCS submission......

Postby makeminemego » Mon Jul 20, 2015 7:53 pm

I submitted 21 (all circle 12 Marvel) books to CBCS at the Wizard World STL convention, which was my first CBCS submission.

The books were graded right in line with the 30 business day window, and showed up at my house today, even though they still show as being in Quality Control according to the CBCS site.

All slabs looked great, with no issues. Grading came back on average .5 more generous than I had them graded at across the board, with only 2 exceptions. I like the slab better than CGC's, and the packaging for the return shipping was impressive as well.

I'm really happy with their service, and depending on the market's response to CBCS overall, I may be using them again in the future.

The CBCS slab is preferable to any other grading company's for several reasons. The most important is that it is with any doubt the most tamper evident. You cannot remove that strip with the clips across the top without it being evident. I can pop CGC slabs half the time and PGX slabs nearly every time and have it be unnoticeable. When you add to that the label is not sealed in the inner holder like CBCS and PGX, CGC books are not near as immune to label swaps and forgeries as one would like.

The slab is just a tiny bit thinner as well - which means a few more will fit in box. Always a plus.

Packaging is over the top. Grading is mostly consistent with CGC, though they are I'm certain stricter on books published the last 10 years or so. No passes on common production defects.

Good points. I think their slabs look clearer too.
